`=>` Waste management


As we have studied a lot about the air, water, soil and industrial waste .So now there is a great need of controlling environmental pollution.So we must need to take some steps/activities, which that would control air, water, soil and industrial waste pollution.

Waste Management

β˜… Besides household discards, there are medical, agricultural, industrial and mining wastes.

β˜… The improper disposal of wastes is one of the major causes of environmental degradation. Therefore, the management of wastes is of utmost importance.

β˜… Domestic wastes are collected in small bins, which are then transferred to community bins by private or municipal workers

β˜… From these community bins, these are collected and carried to the disposable site.

β˜… At the site, garbage is sorted out and separated into biodegradable and non-biodegradable materials.

β˜… Non-biodegradable materials such as plastic, glass, metal scraps etc. are sent for recycling.

β˜… Biodegradable wastes are deposited in land fills and are converted into compost.

β˜… If the waste is not collected in garbage bins,it finds its way into the sewers and effects the marine life too. Some of it is eaten by cattle.

β˜… Polythene bags(non-biodegradable substance), if swallowed by cattle can cost their lives also. Therefore, all domestic wastes should be properly collected and disposed.

β˜… The poor management causes health problems leading to epidemics due to contamination of ground water.

β˜… Rrag pickers and workers involved in waste disposal are mostly effected by it , as they are the ones who handle waste materials mostly without protective device such as gloves or water proof boots and gas masks.
